A FREE reference guide for students who are learning how to write a business letter. This is a visual for students to refer to when they are crafting a business letter. The traditional format shows that there are 6 parts to a business letter: heading, inside address, salutation, body, closing, and signature. Give the handout to your students as a model, and then let them compose their own business letter. In color and black and white. Also includes a handout or reference guide on the differences between a business letter and a friendly letter.

Digital and Print: I have also made an Easel Activity all ready to go for distance learning with a digital pen tool, highlighter, and text boxes for students to type their answers. It is an Interactive layer over the original pdf. You can then assign it via Google Classroom. Click here to learn more if you want to understand how Easel Activities work. You can select the pages you want and even add your own directions or notes! This is helpful for remote teaching.
